Malletech Marimba Mallets MB8 Michael Burritt Series
Produces a huge sound throughout the range of the marimba. Michael is internationally respected as a marimba virtuoso, composer and teacher.
The six models of the Michael Burritt Series are built around 1 1/8 -inch diameter natural rubber cores. All of the models also have one or more additional layers of latex rubber on top of the natural rubber for a more complex multi-toned response pattern.
All models are wrapped and stitched with a unique synthetic yarn that has great durability. All models feature select birch shafts. Most percussionists know Leigh Howard Stevens as the marimbist Time Magazine hailed as the world's greatest classical marimbist and the author of the most widely used book on the subject of four-mallet technique and as a concert artist, educator and recording artist. Not as many know that he is the founder of Malletech and that he has recently received his fifth and sixth U.S. Patents for keyboard percussion design (most recently for real-time control of the depth and speed of vibrato and for Malletech's super-smooth resonator technology). Leigh is actively involved with the company and using input from the artists who perform on Malletech, he designs all the products.
